JANESVILLE — The Janesville LPGA Senior Pro-Am seemed like a home game Saturday for Madison golfer Becky Iverson.

Playing in front of family and friends, the director of golf at the Bridges Golf Club in Madison, shot 74 in the first round of the 36-hole event at Janesville Country Club. That left her five shots behind first-round leader Lisa DePaulo.

“It was fun to play in front of them," Iverson said. "They only see me behind the desk, so it was nice to be relaxed on the course."

Even when she does get the chance to play at the Bridges, she finds herself still working.

“When you work in a club, it’s really hard to get out there and play, and when you do, you feel kind of distracted," Iverson said. "I know when I play my course, I’m constantly on the phone with my golf superintendent, telling him what I like and don’t like.”

Commuting from her home in Madison, Iverson is eager to see what a good night's rest and a second try at Janesville CC brings.

“I had a really good group here,” said Iverson. “Overall, today was a lot of fun.”
